Calling all alumni and friends of NYC!
Celebrate Northwest Youth Corps’ 30th Year during the weekend of September 6-7, 2014, at the NYC campus, in Eugene, Oregon.
Planned activities include a festive dinner, commemorative T-shirt and art contest with cash prizes (more on this below), family fun day, barbeque, service project at the NYC Farm, free tent camping at the NYC campus for you out-of-towners, and more! .
Here’s how you can get involved:
Remember to RSVP. First, keep your eyes open for our RSVP email we will send out in August. We are planning many yummy meals and need to know how many guests to expect!
Share Your Adventure Contest. Second, start planning to share your memories through NYC's Share Your Adventure Contest. We are looking for artwork in a variety of themes (compelling story, funny, heartfelt, etc.) that speak to The NYC Experience. Submit your contribution in a variety of media, including written story, video, song, poem...Even a great still photo with a one-word caption can work! To sweeten the deal, we are offering cash prizes, including $100.00 for first place, $50.00 for second place, and an awesome NYC hoodie or thermos for third place. Plus all podium finishers get their submission linked to our blog and website. Winners will be announced during the gala dinner Saturday night.
Also, if you know anyone who should get this information, invite them to “like” our Facebook alumni page, https://www.facebook.com/northwestyouthcorpsalumni?fref=ts and get updates this way, or give us their email and we’ll keep them updates. You can also contact Natalie Whitson, Northwest Youth Corps 30th Year Celebration Co-Chair, (541) 349-7505, nataliew(at)nwyouthcorps.org with your questions and suggestions.
